Overwatch Winter Wonderland Launches

Today Overwatch’s latest update launched and with it game a whole host of new features and the like. The main thing of note however is the launch of the festive Winter Wonderland content. This update includes the usual set of new emotes, sprays and skins and a whole new gamemode in the form of the Yeti Hunt. There is also the return of Mei’s Snowball Offensive.

The new gamemode, Yeti Hunt, is an asymmetrical mode that see’s five Mei characters hunting down one Winston. The player playing as Winston must search the map for meat inspired power-ups that will charge his Primal Rage allowing him to defeat is tiny ice flinging opponents.

Mei’s Snowball Offensive is pretty much just one giant snowball fight. This means that you get one shot from Mei’s primary but it is a one shot kill, which is nice.

There is also a change to the reporting system. Players who get reported will receive a message telling them that they have been reported and warning them about negative behavior. The consequences of further bad behavior can include silence, suspension, or a permanent ban, depending on what it is the player has done. In the very worst cases the player will receive the punishment before the message is sent out.

It is hoped that these measures will help curb the toxicity of the community. What do you thing, is this a real problem or have things been blown out of proportion and are these measures enough to help?
